I appreciated how quickly I received responses and how brief but detailed the communication was.
Brandi M. ImmersieveTouch
Emily is a rockstar.
Charlie G. Charlie Guild
The entire process: the bidding, the files submission and proofs, final printing and delivery was all excellent! Your team was great to work with, especially Emily Srodon!
Jeff M. Marshall Media
Speedy, helpful, great communication
Edgar M. Edgar Melero
The Alphagraphics staff was great. Very quick, professional, friendly, & helpful. The team even provided me with a discount code when I required a reprint (from my own error!). I’m impressed & will definitely refer others.
Allison E. Allison Erfort
Just to repeat that Ken D'Souza noticed a mistake in our delivery label that quite possibly saved us some time and anguish. Ken is conscientious, patient and capable. He was even good enough to reply to an email I sent on the weekend. He was a pleasure to work with. I also spoke with Emily Srodon on several occasions. She was always pleasant, well informed and helpful.
Dean J. RFID
We would rather be invoiced for work. I appreciate why you demand payment at time of order entry, but it just adds a layer of complication at time of inception. In fact I have used other vendors solely for this reason.
James S. 1871
Excellent customer service and the quality of the product was top notch.
Kathy K. Kathy Kraas
Brian Murdoch is a great asset to the Alpha Graphics team. He always goes above and beyond.
Amanda A. City Club of Chicago
The service was a very efficient. We had used a previous vendor and the staff at Alpha Graphics were kind enough to allow us to drop off a sample of our current cards to ensure we included all the necessary information in the specs. This gave helped trust that our order would be completed properly. We loved the fact that this was a local vendor so that we could do so! Communication was excellent and friendly.
Xochitl C. Windy City Paws
Emily Srodon is a rock star and made everything easy and happen on a rushed timeline.
Sonia B. Sonia Reps
Business cards turned out perfect. The person that I worked with made things easy.
Nathan C. Nathan Casteel
Given the time constraint, turn-around time of 4 hours for 8 pieces of marketing collateral with bleeds, the outcome was more than we could have hoped for. Thank you AlphaGraphics for your professionalism, both in print quality and your team!
Deborah I. NantWorks
It is always a pleasure to work with you.
Jonathan T. Jonathan Tomek
Emily has been awesome to work with and she is always great at getting us any answers we may need.

Charlie S. CBRE
Responsive and reliable - I would definitely recommend!
Emily P. L3 Hospitality Group, LLC
My experience with AlphaGraphics is always top notch. This experience was no different, and I was able to complete a project earlier than expected since they were able to accommodate a quick turnaround on a very custom ask.
Sarah M. JB Training Solutions
Excellent service on time and accurate
Tony J. Articulate Science
I used your services to print a poster for a conference nearby. Communication with the account manager was great, and pickup was a breeze. Thank you for a smooth transaction!
Matilde M. Matilde Miranda
There were installation issues that were eventually resolved - while we were waiting for completion, materials were left scattered in one of our meeting rooms so we couldn't use it.
Jennifer J. Sphera
It's been a pleasure working with Brian Murdoch. The level of service and quality of finished product has been exceptional!
Kendra B. Wilson Sporting Goods Co.
I have had a couple issues with the way the product was delivered (some things have been cut off), but I love working with your team because you are very professional and have always been able to get me things quickly!
Anna A. Hyatt Regency Chicago
Emily was really helpful and nice. I'm an audio engineer and sometimes hear the timbre and inflection and cadence of someone's voice and think jeeeeeez they literally sound perfect for this part/role/position/job. Emily has one of those voices and that made it easy to shop over the phone like I was talking to an old friend or something; and no bad salesy pressure or rushing me off the phone like another place I called. And she had the skills to help inexperienced yet picky new customer like me. I'll be back to order again soon and have already recommended to you my friend with a dog day care place in Logan...
Mike H. Fade Out Media
I worked with Emily to have my order ready on time, and she was so polite and easy to work with. The final product looked great too,
Ian H. Ian Hosack
Rob Halverson and his team do an exceptional job taking care of our customers who travel to Chicago. They've handled multiple 5-figure projects at some of the largest venues and never fail to exceed our customers' expectations. Special thanks to Charlotte Schultz as well, keep up the great work!

Amanda K. VS Networks
Alphagraphics goes above and beyond in their service. We recently had a mistake on our Annual Report and needed a quick and low cost fix. Emily, our point person at Alphagraphics, was extremely responsive and gave a creative fix so we would have everything within a day without having to do a full reprint order. Amazing!

Krista C. Cojocar Design
Everyone I spoke to was extremely helpful. It can be hard to place an order like this when you don't know exactly what you need, but Emily Srodon was particularly helpful.

ABOUT THE OWNER
AlphaGraphics Chicago North had been serving the printing and communication needs of Chicago businesses for 24 years before Rob purchased the company in September of 2011. "We work with small and mid-sized businesses to provide marketing, mailing, printing and design services, often for companies that do not have those capabilities internally," states Rob.
Rob has worked in a number of different industries, initially in marketing, and moving to mortgage, banking, title insurance, financial services and now back to marketing and printing. All along, Rob's most treasured asset has been his network and the relationships he has forged and maintained in Chicago.
Regardless of industry, company, or position, Rob has always built businesses and/or departments thorugh his own efforts. His network was originally created within the real estate industry while working in the mortgage banking industry. As his network continued to expand, he moved into commercial and private banking.
In 2003, along with his attorney partners, he launched a new company, Synergy Title Services LLC. In just over four years, he built and sold the business to a national competitor. After the sale, Rob migrated back into banking/financial services, first with JP Morgan, and then with Morgan Stanley, while acquiring several licences including: Series 7, 65, 63 and State of Illinois Insurance.
Rob lives in the Lakeview neighboorhood of Chicago. He is married with two children. He is an avid runner, having completed the Chicago Marathon twelve times and having qualified and ran the Boston Marathon in 2010. Rob also completed the Ironman Wisconsin Triathlon in 2011. Rob is also an avid skier, both on the water and on the slopes, and is a youth lacrosse and softball coach.
